Screen Guild Players, otherwise known as The Screen Guild Theater, was one of the most popular drama anthology series during the Golden Age of Radio. From its first broadcast in 1939, up to its farewell in 1952, the show was able to showcase radio adaptations of some of the most popular Hollywood films back then. A lot of popular Hollywood names became part of the show, including Bette Davis, Bing Crosby, Clark Gable, Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra, and many more. The actors’ fees for their performance were all donated to the Motion Picture Relief Fund, an organization that provides aid to retired actors.
Screen Guild Players was heard on different radio networks, beginning from CBS from 1939 to 1948, on NBC from 1948 to 1950, on ABC from 1950 to 1951, and finally, back to CBS until its last episode on June 29, 1952. Throughout its run, a total of 527 episodes were produced.
